Well, I merely let Linux Lite do it's thing, and I haven't really paid any attention to what version of the kernel it wants to install when I run the Install Updates tool :)
And I have no real interest in messing around with bleeding edge Linux kernels. I just want a stable box.
Which Linux Lite really has been for me, until now.
Great work, guys!

When I initially installed Linux Lite, I downloaded the default ISO that appears in the download section. And I didn't mess with anything kernel related in the package manager.

Are you telling me that all of you other guys are on kernel 5.4 ?  :o

No se que ocurre pero cuando le meto el password es como si se vuelve a cargar y otra vez me vuelve a salir la misma pantalla. El password esta bien metido ya que si pruebo otra palabra da error.

Thank you Firenice03, that work perfectly, good lesson learned, really appreciate it.

Now, I was following the direction to install the drive for Brother MFC-J6510DW, first step turn the download on a black file, nothing else is in there, so after running the next step, now that I can used "sudo su", got the message:

Driver-packages cannot be found.
 Confirm the model name.

At the end still can install the Brother Driver, I am running a Ubuntu Studio on a Desktop, and I did not have any problem downloading the driver, but with this hp laptop, that I have LinuxLite does not letting me.
I have been using LL3.8 on a VM for a couple of years, but with EOL coming up, I want to move to LL5.2.

How can I  transfer the following customisation/configuration:

1. Initial boot screen (Gradient Gold with a LL Feather) ... It seems to have disappeared in LL4/5.
2. Greeter window background colour
3. Desktop background set to solid colour
4. Task bar, Change colour and panel setup

Is it possible to just copy some configuration files/directories?  If so, how do I find out what I need to copy?

Was there a reason why you were using the 5.8 kernel?

Just wanted to confirm that if the computer goes into suspend before the DAC goes offline then the DAC is connected on resume. I can make that work for my situation.

So would that be solved or side stepped ;)

Thanks for the input, it is greatly appreciated.

If you're running a command you can precede with sudo to give elevated root access. ie..
Code: [Select]
sudo df -hWill run df -h as root... you will be prompted for a password - your user password...

If the instruction your following suggest "su" or "su -", switching to root, it may be for another derivative like CentOS etc..
Feel free to post link/question for added clarification...

Network / [ SOLVED ] No network device after latest update
« Last post by jacmoe on January 14, 2021, 09:17:55 AM »
Today, upon rebooting after an update, Linux Lite informed me that there were no network devices available.
Rebooting into Linux 5.4 solved that problem.
Are there any known issues with Linux 5.8?

Not really sure where to put questions like this.
I probably should have put it in the Bugs forum?
Because it is a bug.
Windows works, of course, so it must be something related to kernels and drivers and services/daemons.

Would be interesting to see if this affects others, and not just me (which would be typical) :)

The device is a bog-standard Realtek RTL8111 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller, integrated into my motherboard. My machine is a stationary PC, no wifi, and relatively recent.
I don't mind booting into 5.4, but I hope this gets fixed in 5.8.

Here is the output of
Code: [Select]
lshw -c network:

Code: [Select]
       description: Ethernet interface

       resources: irq:33 ioport:f000(size=256) memory:fd504000-fd504fff memory:fd500000-fd503fff


According to this topic there was some work done that could cause problems with devices.
And another topic also suggests installing the linux-generic package - - but it is already installed, although I noticed that the package depends on Linux 5.4 and not 5.8. I am not sure if that's a problem.
I will run the lshw command on my failed login, but it says UNCLAIMED for the device:

Code: [Select]
  *-network UNCLAIMED
       description: Ethernet controller
       product: RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
       vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
       physical id: 0
       bus info: pci@0000:1e:00.0
       version: 15
       width: 64 bits
       clock: 33MHz
       capabilities: pm msi pciexpress msix bus_master cap_list
       configuration: latency=0
       resources: ioport:f000(size=256) memory:fd504000-fd504fff memory:fd500000-fd503fff

I then went to reinstall the linux-modules package for 5.8.0-38, and it complained that the corresponding linux-headers package for 5.8.0-38 wasn't installed, so I installed that and reinstalled. But the network card is still unclaimed on 5.8.0-38.

I am now going to boot into Windows and get work done, but it would be nice to see an update soon so that I can enjoy Linux :)

EDIT with the solution :

I ran
Code: [Select]
sudo apt clean && sudo apt install --reinstall linux-modules-extra-5.8.0-38-generic and the network device worked in 5.8.0-38 after a reboot, hurray! :D
I have no idea if I had the modules-extra package installed, but it worked. (Or maybe threatening to boot into Windows worked? :p )

So, this is not a fault of my own, but a glitch in the update procedure. My Linux Lite installation is only a couple of months old, so I am not to blame for this.

I hope that this information will be useful for someone else experiencing the problem. ;)
